I think Sonic team and Sega were fools for ditching the Chao Garden from the adventure series. I love the Chao garden and I think it was an amazing edition to the adventure games.
Also Sonic Boom was a dumb decision in my book. I am not against new games in the series, I'm against unnecessary reboots to an extent. I say to an extent because I think DMC Devil May Cry was unnecessary, but I still play it and it's one of my favorite PS3 games. The difference between these two remakes is that Sonic Boom is a bad game (every critic I've watched on YouTube agrees that Sonic Boom is terrible and I trust them...Plus I've seen footage of the game-play...), while DMC has redeeming features that make it a pretty good game.
Well jeez, I got a bit off track. Sorry about that.
